The Worlds Largest Highland Wear Company
Due to their rapid rate of growth ACS have increased their operation by adding a 1000m2 extension to their existing warehouse. Complete Mezzanines in conjunction with their partners Polymark have fully utilised the extension
by installing a 950m2 multi level mezzanine and garment support structure. The structure consists of a first level decked mezzanine with 4 further levels of garment support steelwork above.
The second part of the project consists of a 250m2 extension to their existing mezzanine floor facility. Both structures have been designed to accept an additional mezzanine level. Each conveyor support structure provides a rigid matrix from which a multi-way garment sortation system is hung.
The systems capability is as follows:
Live Storage Capacity - 8,320 garments
No of rails - 32
Max weight of garment - 6 kg
Max sortation speed for single pass - 6,750 garments per hour.
Max sortation speed for double pass using recirculation system - 2,000 garments per hour System caters for 32 routes with a maximum route size of 8,320 garments.
As an alternative 20 rails can be used for 1 sort with a 2nd sort over the remaining 12 rails. A max route size for this option would be 5,200 garments.
